Celebrity Recognizes Agency Excellence

It has been a transformative year for Celebrity Cruises, filled with awards and recognition, and now the cruise line is taking a moment to look back and show appreciation to the travel agencies and advisors who made it all possible.

2019 was marked by several significant milestones for Celebrity:

  • The inaugural year of Celebrity Edge
  • The launch of Celebrity Flora
  • The unveiling of a new brand campaign
  • And the dramatic modernization of Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Summit and Celebrity Equinox as part of THE CELEBRITY REVOLUTION

Dondra Ritzenthaler, senior vice-president, sales, trade support and service for Celebrity Cruises, said, “None of the incredible milestone moments we have unveiled as a brand in 2019 would have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our amazing travel agency partners and travel advisors.”

Ritzenthaler continued, “We look forward to continued collaboration in 2020, starting with the launch of our newest ship, Celebrity Apex, but first we want to stop and take a moment to simply say ‘thank you’ for all you do and for yet another hallmark year.”
